Happy Hacktoberfest 2021! We are excited to announce that Chaos Mesh will be participating in the 8th annual Hacktoberfest hosted by DigitalOcean. During the month of October, anyone is welcome to join in on this global celebration of open-source by contributing changes, and earn one of 55,000 custom-made Hacktoberfest T-shirts!
Chaos Mesh® is a cloud-native Chaos Engineering platform that orchestrates chaos in Kubernetes environments. With Chaos Mesh, you can simulate a variety of failures, and use Chaos Dashboard, a web UI, to manage chaos experiments directly. Since it was open-sourced, Chaos Mesh has been adopted by many companies to ensure their systems’ resilience and robustness. But over the past year, we have frequently heard requests from the community asking how to run chaos experiments when the services are not deployed on Kubernetes.
Interactive Entertainment Group (IEG) is a division of Tencent Holdings that focuses on the development of online video games and other digital content such as live broadcasts. It is well-known for being the publisher of some of the most popular video games.
Apache APISIX is a cloud-native, high-performance, scaling microservices API gateway.

Our customers include NASA, the European Union's digital factory, China Mobile, and Tencent.
On July 23, 2021, Chaos Mesh 2.0 was made generally available! It’s an exciting release, marking a solid milestone towards the chaos engineering ecology that we hope to build.
At KubeCon EU 2021, the Chaos Mesh team hosted two “office hours sessions” where newcomers, community members, and project maintainers had a chance to chat, get to know each other, and learn more about the project.
A multi-tenant cluster is shared by multiple users and/or workloads which are referred to as "tenants".The operators of multi-tenant clusters must isolate tenants from each other to minimize the damage that a compromised or malicious tenant can do to the cluster and other tenants.
Chaos Mesh includes the StressChaos tool, which allows you to inject CPU and memory stress into your Pod. This tool can be very useful when you test or benchmark a CPU-sensitive or memory-sensitive program and want to know its behavior under pressure.
However, as we tested and used StressChaos, we found some issues with usability and performance. For example, why does StressChaos use far less memory than we configured? To correct these issues, we developed a new set of tests. In this article, I'll describe how we troubleshooted these issues and corrected them. This information will enable you to get the most out of StressChaos.
Chaos Mesh® is a cloud-native Chaos Engineering platform that orchestrates chaos in Kubernetes environments. With Chaos Mesh, you can test your system's resilience and robustness on Kubernetes by injecting all types of faults into Pods, network, file system, and even the kernel.
